The Ferretti Group recently signed two dealers in the Asia-Pacific region.

An agreement with Starship Yachts, a pioneer company in the Asian yachting sector, covers the markets of Hong Kong and Macau, giving the company exclusive dealership rights for Ferretti Yachts and Pershing-branded boats.

A separate agreement was signed with Ray White Marine, a player in the marketing of new and used boats, as well as pre- and after-sales service, part of the wider real estate group of the same name, which has more than 70 years of experience. That agreement covers Australia and New Zealand, providing exclusive dealership rights for Ferretti Yachts and Riva and Pershing boats.

In Australia, Ferretti Group, with the support of Ray White Marine, will attend trade shows scheduled next year in locations where the dealer has its main operating sites. The events include the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, which will be held in the Gold Coast in May, and the Sydney International Boat Show, which will take place in the capital city in August.

“We are extremely satisfied with these important dealership agreements, signed with such prestigious partners as Starship Yachts and Ray White Marine, two companies that boast excellent expertise and a strong presence in their respective geographical areas,” Ferretti Group COO Stefano de Vivo said in a statement.
